ELKHART, Ind. (AP) - A northern Indiana city's mayor says it will likely have to close a golf course it owns outside the city limits if a buyer can't be found.

Elkhart Mayor Dick Moore tells The Elkhart Truth (http://bit.ly/NWSCR3 ) a man from Michigan has expressed an interest in buying the Sims Oak Hills Golf Course that the city purchased in 1965 for a dollar. A decision to part with the golf course comes at a time when city officials are faced with budget deficit for 2013.

Moore says he would also like to see the city part with Elliott Park west of the city and Boot Lake Nature Preserve north of the airport, both of which also are outside city limits. Moore hopes Elkhart County's parks department would acquire both properties.
